Gardening is a huge part of what we do. Our chickens provide nutrients for our soil. We start plants indoors well before the last frost. We weed and weed and weed. If all goes well, we harvest!
Years ago...more than 25 years ago (yikes)! I took a Master Gardener Class through our local extension office. This class lasted several weeks where we learned all the ins and outs of gardening.
There were guest speakers ranging from arborists, foresters, small and large farmers and backyard gardeners. After taking the classes, we had to pass a written test on all the information we'd been taught and then put in hours of community service.
Finally, we were declared Master Gardeners. These classes happen throughout the US and are very informative. When I took the class, I lived in an apartment with no gardening space!
This page will host gardening tips and information that I learned as a Master Gardener, from our experiences as gardeners, and from my dad and brother who are truly Master Gardeners!
